    Regular price should be $30 now. I’d easily buy this if it was on sale for $10.

      Its $16.50… Just buy it! Bought it at launch price and again digitally. Totally worth it.

        I have heard very mediocre things about it, and from the Twitch plays I have watched it doesn’t look all that interesting with fairly repetitive gameplay. The story seems okay, and would be the only reason I would think of purchasing. If I didn’t buy it from Amazon for $20 physically, I’m definitely not purchasing it for $17 digitally. $10 is the sweet spot on this one.

        Simply buy it for the 360 then at $12. Unless you don’t have one of course.

        It is not a great game but it is not a bad game either. It is certainly not as bad as all those reviews claimed it to be. I really enjoyed it. Just know what you are getting before you buy. In particular, it is not an action or survival horror game.

        I bought it already but haven’t played it yet. I was figuring LA Noire type of game?

      • Burnt Offering

        The only thing it really shares with LA Noire is some of the one-liners. It really is not a bad game at all if you allow it to be what it is, and that is a nice story game with a cool plot twist and a few adventure and action elements thrown in for good measure. I rented it on the 360 and at this price it is already downloading into my One.

        Uh, no. You have no clue as to how retail workers. Anything sent to stores have some called MSRP (Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price) stating that the product is suggest to sell at a certain price (usually $59.99 for games). It is up to the stores and/or sometimes the manufacturer to determine if there should be a sale or permanent price drop.

      Simple economics really, there are still more 360 owners/users than Xbox One owners/users. More customers equals more possible sales and cash flow thus can support a slightly lower price point as the volume will make up for the difference in profit margin.

    Might bite on this, it’s annoying that it has to be £10.56 like you can’t just make it £10.00 even? Or even £10.50?

    I’m still hoping for a 50% discount on Dead Rising 3: Apocalypse Edition making it £20 in the UK. Then I’d probably end up getting that Soul Suspect and might give Thief a whirl (I’ve heard terrible things about it but the setting appeals to me and £10 isn’t much of a gamble.

    These deals would be so much better if they stopped this daily stuff and just had a bunch of discounts that lasted for the duration. Sony are just as guilty of this ‘daily deal’ stuff.

    I’ve got £45 on my account from vouchers and don’t really want to spend over that for digital content. Every purchase is a gamble, rather than just calculating what I want to buy and buying it.

    I guess the logic is that we might spend more money this way but I’m not going over £45 regardless. If I’m spending real cash, I’m buying physical copies.

    Ugh. The Metro games, AGAIN? Was like two weeks ago they were on sale. They’re brilliant games but I already had them the last time they were on sale.
